About the Owner

I was a resident in Kalkan from 1996 and I know the town well, having been co-owner of the Water Sports company at Kalamar Beach Club before immigrating. I watched it grow from a small fishing village to its current status as the playground of British and European holidaymakers. I now live in Australia with my Aussie partner, and enjoy returning to my “home” annually to see my family and friends, and to show Suzanne the wonders of Turkey and Kalkan. ‘Australis’ is the Latin word meaning ‘Southern’. The villa was named after its southern location on the Turkish Mediterranean coastline and my ties with Australia, derived from “Terra Australis”.

Clean and Comfortable with a Penthouse to die for

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in the area before we new what to expect - relaxing holiday, good food, good swimming and excellent hospitality. We also new about the hill! Villa Australis is very clean and comfortable and fairly modest on the ground floor but the Penthouse Retreat on the first floor put the rest of the villa in the shade. The pictures do not do it justice. Having paid for the holiday and talking two grown up children my conscious was clear taking the first floor suite but it may cause some problems if two couples are sharing the villa. Will certainly go back to the area and the villa again.

Stunning penthouse views

  • 4 of 5

Just arrived back after a fabulous 2 week's stay at Villa Australis, The villa is located in the Kalamar area of Kalkan and is a perfect spot to walk to the beach and soak in the stunning views from the amazing penthouse bedroom. The villa is well equipped and clean but again the highlight is the master bedroom with it's uninterrupted views even from the shower. We spent most of our time on the terrace looking straight out onto the med or star gazing with a glass or 2! The villa is situated on a quiet street and is literally a 5 minute walk to the fabulous Kalamar beach where we enjoyed snorkelling, swimming and even a Jet Ski ride. The walk into town is up quite a steep hill but manageable in the evening, there is however a lovely restaurant 'House Cafe' round the corner that serves superb meals with excellent service. Would definitely recommend the villa for couples although if you are travelling with friends there would be a fight as to who stayed in the penthouse!!

Lovely villa in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Australis is a lovely place to stay. Exceptionally well appointed it is also in an excellent location. We found it extremely comfortable, it had great views and all the facilities we needed. Although we went out and explored a lot we were also just as happy chilling at the villa - relaxing on the sunbeds reading and enjoying the pool. It's just a short walk down the hill to Kalamar beach club where you can easily spend the day. At Kalamar beach club you pay a small fee for sunbed & use of water trampoline, kayak and paddleboat. You can also use their WIFI if needing to keep in touch with work! The swimming is great too. If we needed to go into Kalkan we either walked 25 minutes or jumped in a cab which is a very reasonable way to travel. Ender who looked after the villa was incredibly helpful and we couldn't fault the villa in anyway. We are definitely planning a return trip. Kalkan itself is a lovely place. Everyone is so friendly, there are some lovely places to eat out and the sea is absolutely magical for swimming. We went on a boat day trip with Zeus which was fantastic and had adventures to Patara and the stunning Zaputas beach. We also visited the Kalkan beach park one day which was fun - we were with our kids so they loved the waterslide coming down into the sea. A fantastic holiday and definitely made better by the lovely Villa Australis.

G'day Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This Villa is fantastic. We arrived back this morning after a fabulous stay here. The Vista from the top bedroom is beyond belief - every morning we awoke, feeling we were on the set of a Bond Movie. The Villa Australis team had taken every step to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as we'd hoped. The linen, towels and "Kitchen stuff", TV, Music systems are of the quality you would expect. The overall feel of the Villa was high quality - it was really well maintained. The Washing machine was helpful to us although we couldn't master it - it's a good job it was so warm outside to cook off our sopping we clothes. (Well done on the Aussie decor Guys - you nailed it). New Visitors to Kalkan may not be aware of the hills and hikes just to get into the town, so be warned that this Villa is situated toward the bottom of the Kalamar bay area, making walks into the centre a bit of a challenge when it's very warm outside. However, there are Cab firms aplenty and the cost is minimal. All that said, as much as we regularly ate out at Kalkan's fantastic restaurants, such is the beauty of Villa Australis, that we also spent half of our evenings staying in and cooking for ourselves and our friends - because the Villa lends itself to good times. We are a family of four, with two kids aged 10 (Girl) and 14 (Boy), so it shouldn't go without mention that another great aspect of the Villa and it's design is that we could all have our privacy and that was a very welcome aspect of this rental. Thanks Ender, thanks Team Australis. We hope to see you again.

FABULOUS VILLA

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay as a family of five in Kalamar but the first at Villa Australis - what a find! We arrived in the middle of the night but, despite the hour, we were warmly greeted by Ender and welcomed with a lovely bottle of wine and local supplies. The villa is pretty from the outside, beautifully decorated within and with balconies providing stunning views over the bay. It has its own small infinity pool and the kitchen opens onto an attractive and comfortable outside dining area. The villa is extremely well appointed and, throughout our stay, Ender was on hand to help. Kalamar beach is just two minutes stroll away and Kalkan an enjoyable 15 minute walk along the coast. The local shops are open all the time and are happy to deliver at no extra cost, including huge water containers for the cooler in the villa. We would highly recommend Villa Australis to a family or a couple who are looking for somewhere memorable as the master bedroom is really special. Thank you Gokhan for sharing Villa Australis with us. We will be back!

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to Gokhan and to Ender for a really great holiday in Villa Australis. We found the villa to be excellent, especially the top floor with the large bedroom and decked terrace giving beautiful views of the bay. The villa is only a couple of minutes drive to the centre of Kalkan, so you never feel you are too remote from Kalkan itself. The villa offers good value for money as it is furnished to a high standard and is very well equipped, there is a safe even though it is not mentioned in the property description and even a prepaid mobile phone to ring taxis etc. There are ample sunbathing areas that get sun all day and also places to sit in the shade when it gets too hot as well as the lovely alfresco dining area.

There are places to eat and drink close by and if you want to eat- in or BBQ, the local supermarkets will deliver free of charge.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa.

Location

From the Owner

Kalkan is one of the prettiest Mediterranean towns on the Southern coast of Turkey. A 15 minute leisurely stroll from the villa or a short bus ride will find you in the heart of Kalkan’s restaurant and entertainment hub where you can meander down cobbled streets between historical buildings covered in pink bougainvillea. You will be tempted by quaint shopping boutiques, an array of fine dining experiences, cocktail bars, coffee and ice-cream shops open every night of the week during peak season. Perhaps you will take a day trip out on one of the many boats or catamarans located in the marina. Kalkan is a great location to use as a base to explore other tourist attractions along the coast, such as Patara Beach and the famous towns of Fetiye and Kas.
